Family Truly DOES Matter

Wow, I was watching Reality Remix Weekend on the Fox Reality Channel and caught the highlight reel from Celebrity Rehab with Dr. Drew (airs on VH1).

Guess who is on the show? Judy Winslow (Jaimee Foxworth), the youngest daughter from Family Matters (the Perfect Strangers spin-off, remember?). In one of the most chunky moves by a family sitcom ever, at the beginning of the fifth season she just wasn't there and was never spoken of again by the family. I know that her role was quite minor - she was the Carrie Ingalls of the Winslow family - but to not even attempt to explain her disappearance still haunts me in my dreams. Apparently, it still haunts Jaimee as well. She turned to porn and now smokes weed "every hour." Thank goodness Pa never turned out Carrie Ingalls, or Lindsay/Sidney Greenbush might be on Celebrity Rehab too.

In all seriousness, I hope that she can put her life back together. The lives of child stars can be so sad.

I had to sit and think a minute about who she was. Then the light came on...she did kind of fall off the side of the world. How sad!

I know! I actually liked her character - I think because she was the closest to my age. She is still really pretty too - once she gets the dope-y look out of her eyes!
